The Ritz Carlton South Beach is in a fantastic location, that's why I booked it and I wasn't disappointed.
Our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were super comfy.
The concierge were excellent, Noel particularly. They gave us great local advice and super restaurant recommendations.
The pool area is good, however, the music is cranked up louder and louder as the day goes on. At the weekend the pool music competes with live music from the beach bar and when I say competes I mean it, it's LOUD. So, why not use the hotel's beach area, we did, it was lovely and quiet, but for some reason they charge $25 for the use of an umbrella, something not done by the pool. The elevator music is noisy and when returning to the room each evening after the turn down service we found the tv turned on, what's wrong with silence?
Is the noise enough to put me off returning, perhaps, and that's a shame because everything else was great.
